Event Description

First Friday and for the month of June, showcasing "Rockscapes" for it's first time! Hours: Mon.-Sat. 10AM -6PM, Sundays 11AM- 5PM Larry Blackwood's compositions of rock forms are abstract but recognizable which give your mind something to anchor to. They have a sensual and emotional feel. Larry is self taught and has been photographing for over forty years. He exhibits regularly in museums and galleries around the country and recently in China as well. His work has been published in major fine art photography publications including multiple portfolios in Lenswork and Black and White. His Bio: Bio Larry Blackwood is a self-taught photographer with more than forty years of experience. A post-visualization guy, he takes pictures and explores their full potential later. His work has been published in major fine art photography publications including multiple portfolios in Lenswork and Black and White. Larry defines rockscapes as semi-abstract compositions primarily consisting of rock forms. “If you are going to go abstract it is best to have something recognizable, something to anchor the mind while exploring the visual shapes.” This body of work is all about solid rock, yet it is sensual and emotional. About creativity, Larry says that his best work results when “something happens in my brain to put it at a level of consciousness in which I appreciate and understand things that I normally would not.” Robert Henri’s book The Art Spirit has been the road map and inspiration for much of Larry’s creative life. Here is his favorite quote. “There are moments in our lives, there are moments in a day, when we seem to see beyond the usual. Such are the moments of our greatest happiness. Such are the moments of our greatest wisdom.” It is in the nature of all people to have these experiences; but in our time and under the conditions of our lives, it is a gift to be able to continue in the experience and find expression for it.
